The Rage presentation at QuakeCon 2010 featured live playthroughs of the same content across all three platforms: PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. All three platforms ran at a solid 60 frames-per-second without hitching even during intense action.
if i get this i would like the pc version but to be honest from what ive seen it doesn't look that special apart from graphics. im willing to give it a chance though because ive only looked at the e3 footage.

I've never liked ID games in the past because they seemed to be more of a showcase of their engine rather than a good game. The games were decent, but nothing too memorable.
@AAACE5 While I completely disagree with your overall sentiment with ID, I will say that they haven't produced or developed any really good game in over 10 years (Quake 3 Arena was their last really good game). If someone doesn't agree, please tell me a really good game since then (Doom 3? Quake 4? Enemy Territory? Not terrible, but definitely not great, and two of those are from Raven Software). No one can legitimately deny ID's or Carmack's accomplishments with the creation of the FPS with Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake, but I feel that Rage will be a test to see if they are still capable of releasing games that are more than just technically impressive. I'm sure some will disagree with this, but as far as I know, it's ok to be skeptical (at least a little bit) of a developer that has taken a 10 year break from being top tier. I am, personally, expecting the game to be great, but time will tell if that expectation is reached.

Id has a lot of ground to make up. People are beginning to wise up and realize it wasn't piracy that made their sales slump. It was mediocrity. If you were a pc gamer when quake wars came out did you buy quake wars unreal 3 crysis tf2 or cod4? the gamers chose tf2 and cod4 and the dev's for the first 3 went on to blame piracy. Though Crysis went on to sell a few million when hardware caught up. That said I'm looking forward to RAGE. I'm probably one of the few on my steam list that does though. Which is why I say they have a lot of ground to make up.
I hope the PS3 version truly does run at 60FPS with no compromises like screen tearing or lack of anti-aliasing, because I really want to buy more multiplatform games for my PS3.
but i get the feeling you feel like i do saber. i mean hell the ps3 is almost 4 yrs old and i still feel like before i buy a multiplat for mine i'm playing russian roulette. granted in MOST cases it's gotten better, and i think rage will be one of those cases that it will be fine. also man do like me kinda lol and keep in my mind, some things are exaggerated so much that those on the internet make mtns outta mole hills- happens a lot with multiplats these days. why i like demos- i can dl the ps3 demo and the 360 demo and see some what for myself- but you can't go buy that 100%. all i do is mainly look for performance issues that are real bad, like you mentioned and i pay attention to the controls. also i go buy how long the demo was released before the full version- but that's not 100% neither. it's a shame 4 yrs later some of us like you and me still feel this way. some of these devs really need to get it together. i understand money and time restraints, but shit it's been 4 years, and either way i spend 60 bucks- i think if i buy it for my ps3, i should atleast get the same experience as the ones that buy that EXACT SAME GAME for 60 bucks on their 360. see ya.
Get Fallout 3: GOTY if you dont all ready have it.
don't worry. Usually the ps3 multiplatform games are the ones getting free DLC... well that's unless you don't like free DLC.
Screen tearing is an xbox speciality, first, and second, most of the best games are exactly the same, sometimes a little better for one or other, but nothing like xbox fanboyz want to believe ! by the way, uggly xfanboyz like saber, jambabie and others trying to pretend they have a ps3, they care about ps3 version, just to troll a little more, is really pathetic, lies = no bubble. *"rage" game, the new hope for xfanboyz, i knew i would have seen tons of xfanboyz, with their stupid agree/disagrees, like on npd numbers (when 2 months in a year xbox is doing better than the others) edit : some guys, are jumping on news for a demo comparision for mafia, only when ps3 port is not as good as it would have been, and keep thinking mafia is a bad port, even if after that news, another news specify clearly that the definitive version is way better, and prove it with screenshots (grass, hello) !! poor xbrain living in dreamland, always choosing to remember the one or two little thing that don't hurt them (reality is hard, with 4 millions more ps3 then xbox sold last year, more games sold on ps3, best exclusives, graphics, bluray, best motion controler, 3D, etc)
There will be no AA for console versions of Rage. Announced at Quakecon.
I hate such articles.. Just tell us, which version looks better!!! 360 or PS3?
On the big screens, it was not possible to really see any difference (they all looked beautiful). I'm sure the PC will support higher resolutions and better filtering, of course.
lol some tool actually thinks the pc version won't look better.
Yeah Doom, wasn't memorable at all, nor was Wolfenstein, Quake... /s
All the fanboys were talking so much crap about the ps3 version of rage because it was running under 30 fps on ps3 and 60 on 360. And I said why don't u guys just wait until John carmack figures it out and now it looks like he did. The ps3 is now running at 60fps and you guys basically owned urself.
mouse and kb say hello
but what resolution on the consoles?
A very good question indeed. Is there any AA? dynamic environments?
man if there is an even ground between all 3 that means something is not being pushed to the limits. Its like if they showed you x game running 60fps same graphics and everything on ps3 wii and 360 people would be complaining going the game can look better... same theory and concept
changing disks is so last gen
Using any disks is so last gen
60fps on any next gen console manes the graphics are gonna take a hit.. I am sorry but it's true..
I would love to see frame rates on a 24fps scale. I know I'm probably in the minority, but I don't really like 60fps. It feels to arcadey. Forza's races run @ 60fps, but the replays scale down to something like 48 - maybe even 24. The result: something that looks much more like a movie. It takes on that epic quality of motion that you only get from something cinematic. It also allows the game to boost other graphical tidbits like depth of field, AA, and poly counts. Another good example is Bioshock. As is, I think the game is capped around 48fps, which is a variant of 24fps (the frame rate all movies are shot in). In the options, you can unlock the framerate and it jumps up toward 60, maybe even higher. And it looks like shit. If your goal is something cinematic, why do they ignore the framerates? They strive to copy everything else that filmmakers do, why not the motion?
^^ Good Point!!
why is the ps3 the slow loader?
They forgot to mention the 360 version crashed lol.
PS3 needs more of you according to #3's post.
Awww dont cry man, its ok "gives you a hug" There, you feeling better?
yep its true. xbox 360 crashed
Who cares man, the version shown at E3 in front of the whole planet was the 360 version and was running as smooth as a mugerfukr.
didnt stop trolling in npd and mafia 2 threads why? hypocrite.
@Donald4 What exactly did he say that leads you to believe he is calling you all ps3 fanboys? All he said was basically "yeah it crashed but it ran great before." I dont see a problem with that.
He did say it but edited his comment as you can see. So that's why..
yup my friend was there and told me about it and he says that the ps3 and 360 versions look exactly the same. im might go see it later today if they have a live demo running.
Aren't you the same guy who posted that article about Joystiq saying the 360 version crashed and turned the whole article about that problem instead the original article being the release date just for some desperate hits? roflfanboy
Didn't fail to mention that the Ps3 version took longest to load though. I guess none of this matters though because it's not the final product, tool.
they also didn't mention the PS3 version took the longest to load.
"The biggest differences between the platforms--again, the game is a year out from release and still in development--are the load times. The PC version shot ahead of the consoles, while the Xbox 360 loaded next. The PS3 version lagged behind, but this could easily be chalked up to the ongoing development process and not be representative of the final product." What's this?
Disc swapping multiple DVDs with the 360 version is a bigger bother than a few seconds of loading time if we want to be real.
Well...given we can install the game on the 360, I will hedge bets that Id Software makes it so if you do install the game on the 360 then you will only need disc 1 to play...similar to what Forza 3 does. and if you want to be real....load times typically are not a problem...but in a game say like Mod Nation Racers load times were excessive and LONG. I would have given a limb to get up and swap a disc to speed that pile along. Don't discount how bothersome load times can be "if" they are too long. That all said...I have no idea how long the load times are for any of the games so this really may be a non-issue.
Were all talking "what if" her, the game is a year away, so a flamwar is premature, but honestly the only real advantage will be with a power PC. But if this game doesn't have a decent story, I won't get it if it ran at 600fps.
Yeah but at 600FPS it would be over really quickly ;)
Hey Dlacy... you probably would have given a limb to be able to play Mod Nation Racers... which is funny, because people who actually own a PS3 didn't care about that game much... but you xbots have no games, and much worse load times. See GT5 versus F3... GT5 is heads and shoulders... heck and knees above F3 in all categories, but it loads faster... You have extra limbs to go around, since Microsoft gives you one of their "limbs" often.
Keep sucking that Sony limb, Foliage. You obviously like it.
PC always wins on loads times anyway. Large Desktop 3.5 hard drives are much faster than smaller 2.5 drives used on the consoles. Mafia 2 demo loads so quick on PC that i honestly dont have time to read the first line of the writing on the load screen! Seriously the demo loads literally in about 5 seconds on a good PC from the main menu and that writing is displayed for a second at most! I only managed to read what it said when i tried the console demos lol
"The Xbox 360 version also crashed at one point. "If it was finished, we'd ship it," Willits quipped." What's this?
I hope they fix the PS3 virsion, but I'm buying the PC virsion because I'm constaly upgrading my powerhouse of a gaming PC, so I'll be playing +Doom 4 maxed out.
We don't know the set up of the demos. The PS3 version may not have been installed on a HDD.
*snickers* what VIRsion are you getting again? *snickers*
Id should have pushed for 30 frames per second. The textures in the game actually look quite low-res when you look at them up close.
I noticed that too indoors, glad I'm not the only one. My question is, how's the gameplay?
Compared to "other" 60FPS games like *cough Call of *cough Dooties. The game looks phenomenal and may set the standard for any 60FPS game. -End statement
Yup COD textures are one of the ugliest textures I've seen this generation.
That doesn't matter, though. Yes, the game looks really great, but it's weird that when I look at a texture up close, it looks really bad. I don't know how Id did it. Anyway, I think since consoles are generally not powerhouses, 30 frames per second is what all console games should run at unless it's a fighting game, a hack and slash, a racing game, or some other type of closed-environment game where higher fps won't compromise the game.
implying all textures arent ugly when looked at up close
it's most likely gonna be the ps3 to me. i really don't care though i rather play borderlands than rage.
Excellent.Long wait but at least its coming.
Have you guys seen this game? It's gorgeous! I'm definitely getting the PC version!
What's to disagree with on this post? If you aren't getting the PC version then you aren't getting the best. Fact.
idk why people are going crazy over rage we know nothing about its techinical aspect resolution AA effects longevity of effects and animation its like everyone sees 60 fps and says he pushed consoles
FPS is the most important thing for gamers i rather have 66ms input lag then 100ms input lag on 30 fps.
Input lag for a 60 frame ( constant ) game is 16.66666... ms. Unless there is some kind of added input lag on console's for unknown reasons...
After seeing the 360 version on E3, we can safely be assured that the animations are fantastic. This "multi-texture" tech is so tight I could hardly notice the AA. Can you find another 60FPS game that looks as good as this? -End statement
I don't care about technical specs, all I care about is what I see on my screen. The reason people have praised the graphics is because it looks amazing and runs at 60FPS.
Yeah, what we've seen has been pretty but I'm still waiting on what this means for the AI, numbers on screen etc. the only worry i've got atm is that most of the stuff we get to see is when the ascreen's not busy, not a great number of things on screen or many dynamic light sources compared to other recent graphical powerhouses. I don't doubt id in this respect at all but haven't seen the things, yet, to rest my mind on these little quibbles. Worst thing about id, for me, since Romero left, got pushed, decided to kill his career is that their games are a bit too Carmack, a bit too much the tech lover's games and lack a little, idk how to put it so "heart" will have to do-they can feel a little cold to me. Rage promises more and I hope it delivers as so far it's real purdy.
